code section. that is what all of this is talking about. now, as far as the statement of the law, that is not the department or city's position. obviously there is disputes between these different property owners but for us, asking a notice a violation, this is a typical notice of violation asking the peeling paint be addressed that it be done in a practice manner . >> what he has to do is both, clean up the chips on the neighbors property. >> it appeared to the inspect or at the time he did the notice of violation that that had migrated from the peeling paint from the side of the wall. >> do we know that was because of unsafe practices or just the natural? >> no. we did not observe at any time, any work being done to the property in that there wasn't proper containment. just over time there is deterioration. if work were to begin would require proper containment. >> is there peeling paint on the other side? >> i'm not aware if there was. it was not the subject that we were looking at at the time. it's the wall that is at issue before you. >> okay. >> go ahead. so just 2 questio
that they need. we also believe that it will make it easier for law enforcement to enforce this ordinance. i also have that for the record, for public records, submission, some of the pamphlets that are given by the protestors with false information regarding birth control and the effects of abortions. and along with a couple of statements from several patients that have been harassed. and then, finally i have got some pictures and i don't know if i would be able to display them here today. >> slide down. >> sorry, some of these pictures. >> they show the narrowness of the sidewalk as you can see there, you can see if you were coming into our health center you would have to walk, and navigate your way through this and very narrow sidewalk, the intimidation intent of it is very clear and as you can see from this photo, they put the camera there, and you can see a video camera, right there, filming people that are coming into the health center and filming the staff, the staff also is intimidated and one of the woman walked into the health center and woke up a patient and started telling her how tha
to these incidents. and the key question for us was what are the laws that are currently in place and how do we enforce those laws to make sure that these workers and these women are protected and that is when we started talking about forcing on enforcement of the bubble ordinance and something that we have tried and did for a while and quite frankly, the bubble ordinance has not worked. it has not given the tools for the city agencies that are involved to protect these women and these workers. and it is at that time that we started thinking about different options after trying that kind of implementation, if you will, for a few months. and we talked about the creation of a white zone ordinance. and and again the goal here was to strike a balance between the protection of people's right to free speech. and the right of women and men and families to access healthcare at these clinics and an ordinance was crafted and interview and passed by this board of supervisor and we tried to enforce that white zone ordinance in conjunction with the bubble ordinance and yet the intimidation and the harassmen

on transgander and why we're working with the law center, the human rights commission, national center for lesbian rights so we can reform policy within the local criminal justice system in the jails so we're more sensitive and accommodating and effective with the transgender population that we are seeing up tick that is in the county jail system and as sheriff i vow to make sure that we are leading and continue to lead here in the state and beyond in what those policies look like as a result of evictions and this is a whole another story and one that i had many conversations with tommi mecca and others in the audience about by the time they come to the sheriff's department there is a court order process and we have to remain agnostic in this process and execute the order itself. the elected sheriff me and we colleagues across the country have discretion to delay an eviction if there is insufficient information about those potentially being evicted or if they're from a sensitive class meaning elderly or disabled, those suffering from illness and that has to be resolved in the court pr
example. jackson hole, wyoming, and poem broke, florida passed a law about the right know about cell phones. but it didn't require posting information at the point of sale. your information is widespread. i am releasing to you today a new study that is just today about the galley written with [speaker not understood] the chief of neurooncology at the university of california san diego as well as some of the world's top epidemiologists and we find in that study something quite important to the bill that you passed, which is that those who began using cell phones as teen agers have four to eight more times brain cancer by the time 10 years has lapsed. rosemary has seeded her time to me if i may continue. >> you only have two minutes. >>> thank you. the science today is stronger than it was at the time you passed this law. i will read you a quote from the directeder of the international agency for the r on cancer, christopher wild who said, on behalf of the world health organization which decided that cell phone radiation is a, "possible human carcinogen," he made this remark.

and in fact there is law on this particular issue as pointed out in the reply statement. the law never requires impossibilities. that's a code from civil code section 3531. no man is responsible for that which no man can control. that's civil code section 3526. and no one can take advantage of his own wrong or in this case her own wrong, civil code section 3517. this is the law of the state of california. and the department is ignoring it. this board does not have that luxury. >> before we go on to the department rebuttal, i want to focus that we are here to talk about the paint chips that landed on the adjacent property and that's what the violation was about, right? >> no. that's not what it's about. the condition is

at pier 80. osprey a protected under the federal law called the any congratulated treaty. it's - this law is enforced by the fish and wildlife serve. it protects a lot of birds their eggs and nests as well. for the seagulls we're concerned about the western gulls. in particular regards to bird nests conversations with bird life staff their guidance documents and also federal and state management plans consistently indicate that nests in the process have been constructed are not active nests. the n ta does not prevent - knocking down nests that are empty are not a threat. so this speaks to the heart of the pier 80 as i'll describe. if i saw the article you may recall or you may recall from last spring as well that we celebrated having a pair of osprey show up at our according terminal and nest on top of one of the according cranes. we allowed the osprey to raise their chicks. the end of september 2012 the port removed the nests. we did after consulting with the san francisco group and also a communication with auto bond. after that there was wire placed on top of the crane to detour the bi
important service. more cabs is also crucial to restoring some semblance of the law and order to the transportation services on the streets in san francisco. and i don't believe that you're being asked yet to decide exactly how their to go distributed but i want to commits on the s program it's a success program. i do note there's a suggestion to reduce the hours but i hope i won't break this successful program. and a (calling names) >> hi i guess i'm stuck in a time warp. some people missed the fact i said a lot of critical things about your people and i'd like to thank attorney morley and others for the battle against the illegal ride sharing services that they took to the c puc. i think the doctor did an excellent study, however, the part about the ride sharing services is very much lacking. someone said there's about 2 thousand of them on the street that's correct. if the cpr allows them to become legal the market for the taxis may totally tank. if you're going to put out 1 hundred and 20 cabs you'll cover it if the thing does tank. thank you very much >> (calling names)
